Sight is our most powerful sense. What we see determines what we think and feel. This is where ChinaShop excels – the art of visual communication.

ChinaShop, the design division of Michels Warren, can maximise the impact and uptake of any communication effort by providing the visual elements which perfectly fit the message and help drive it home. We provide bespoke creative solutions designed to elevate a brand and increase engagement with key audiences.

Complementing our expertise is the strategic communications strength of Michels Warren Public Relations. Our unique business structure allows us to underpin the unparalleled skills and creativity of our design arm with the compelling copywriting and strategic direction of PR professionals.

Words are powerful tools, but they’re far more powerful when they are visually enhanced.
